While the clouds poured down outside WCHS swimmers brought the heat in the pool. Our swimmers success started with the 50 Freestyle sprint where Samantha Wall got a personal best time and is now just 0.36 seconds away from getting a CIF cut. Many Junior Varsity & Varsity swimmers continued to make improvements on their strokes and finish with their own personal best times. We saw some exciting races where our own Herald swimmers went neck-to-neck the whole way through their events; Zechariah Soto & Davess Verdugo in the 50 Freestyle and Tanner Watson & Jarrett Oldenburg in the 50 Breaststroke.
Sarah Isip earned CIF automatic qualifying times in both of her individual events, 100 Butterfly and 100 Backstroke. The Varsity Girls (Abby Blackwell, Sofia Gastelum, Sarah Isip and Samantha Wall) competed in the final event of the meet, the 400 Freestyle Relay, finishing with a 4:29.87, earning another consideration CIF time. This is the 1st time we have had 2 relays qualify for CIF and we’re only 2 meets into the season!!! A final honorable mention performance goes to Sofia Gastelum who competed for the 1st time in the 500 Freestyle and finished with a very solid time of 6:59.2.
We’re proud of our swimmers and coaches!
